We made it to the dinosaur park. This is our second visit and once again the kids loved it. Last year we visited on a long weekend and it was quite busy, even for of season. This year, we were mid-week. We pretty much had the entire museum to our selves. It was awesome. The kids had a blast. We climbed the world’s tallest dinosaur. A great place. We will have to go back again for an extended stay. There is so much more to see. We were going to stay the night their, but since we had a huge drive ahead of us the following day, we decided to tackle some of it before dinner. We drove and stopped in a municipal campground for the night. We found it interesting because it is based on the honor system. You self register your spot and drop your money in an envelope in a slot. The campground was nice and had clean showers and washrooms. I happily went to bed with the memory of my husband telling the kids a made up store in the loft area under the glow of flashlights and to the sound of giggles. Wonderful.
I awoke in the middle of the night to a seal-bark cough from the toddler. A dose of a botanical tincture from our naturopathic doctor remedied it. This was the first time we tried it, so I remained up for an hour worried about what we were going to do because we didn’t have a humidifier. Non-needed. An hour later, I realized the tincture really did work and drifted back off to sleep.
